1. There are three methods for dealing w/ noncompliance to Congressional subpoenas; each invokes authority from one of three branches of Gov:

1) Inherent Contempt
—Authority of Congress

2) Criminal Contempt
—Authority of Executive

3) Civil Contempt
—Authority of Judiciary
2. The House Judiciary Cmte is pursuing Criminal Contempt.

The Cmte votes today on resolution recommending Pelosi hold a full House chamber vote citing AG Barr w/ Criminal Contempt for noncompliance w/ subpoenas for full unredacted Mueller Report.
(2 U.S.C. § 194 and § 194).
3. Next steps

a) Pelosi schedules full House vote on Barr Contempt citation.
b) If approved, citation is sent to US Attorney for DC, Jessie Liu.
c) Liu decides whether to prosecute her boss, Atty-Gen Barr.
d) If Liu prosecutes, she presents Contempt citation to DC Grand Jury.

1. #Maddow @MaddowBlog Rachel ON FIRE re #BarrTestimony #BarrCoverUp re #MuellerLetters. And that Trump was well within his rights to fire a prosecutor if he thought the charges against him were unfair. And that #HillaryClinton was the problem, not #PutinPuppet Trump... @DeAdder
2. #Maddow @MaddowBlog #HillaryClinton ON FIRE " #Barr is Trump's Defense Attorney, NOT the job he auditioned for, #AttorneyGeneral. "This goes to the core of whether we are a nation of laws or a nation of men." Gawd I miss @HillaryClinton
3.#Maddow #HillaryClinton tells Rachel "Get back to the business of calling witnesses who are mentioned in the #MuellerReport and begin to tell the public story." @HillaryClinton also discusses the possibility #AGBarr could be held in #ContemptOfCongress
